Earlier today, we reported that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson surprisingly took to facebook to air some dirty laundry. The superstar wrote in a public post that certain members among his "male co-stars" have not been conducting themselves well, full on calling them out as "too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway," using his old catch phrase and calling them "Candy asses."
"When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling - you're right," he wrote.
That led to some immediate speculation about just who he was talking about. According to a TMZ report, the object of The Rock's ire was series star and producer Vin Diesel. According to their sources, Diesel and Johnson had a "secret meeting" on set to figure out what the source of his issues were. Diesel has been famously heavily involved in the franchise for the last several films, and is largely credited with keeping it alive after a couple of disappointing sequels made it seem that it may be short-lived, not the massive worldwide success it has turned into. Apparently his decisions as a story contributor and producer "didn't sit well" with Johnson.
Their sources also said that the rest of The Rock's male co-stars weren't happy about the public statement, as the rest of them were harangued by fans and friends alike about whether The Rock was talking about each of them. Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Tyrese, Ludacris, and Scott Eastwood also star in the film.
Fast 8 wraps filming in just ten days - and it will probably be an interesting final week and change on the set thanks to this new drama.
